Eyes In The Sky: The Future of AI and Satellites

Mar 10, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

The geospatial industry is producing petabytes of data from satellites, sensors, drones, and other gauges. One company (Spaceknow) is building an AI system that will process this kind of data in meaningful ways. It will scan, understand, and narrate daily activities of us – all seven billion us. This will fundamentally change the way we view, relate to, and understand planet Earth. Many other companies will follow, much to the chagrin of world goverments. Will there be anywhere to hide from the Eyes in the Sky?
